Friday Night Lights to Make Season 5 Its Last

With Season 4 of Friday Night Lights finishing its run on DirecTV tonight (Season 4 will air on NBC beginning April 30), word comes that Season 5 will be the show’s last. An NBC representative has told Michael Ausiello at Entertainment Weekly that while no official decision has been made, all of the principals at FNL have been given permission to seek other work once the shoot for Season 5 concludes in June. As Mr. Ausiello points out, the actors and creators of FNL have received this information at a fortunate time: right at the start of pilot season. A critical darling, especially for its acting, there is no doubt the folks on FNL will have little problem finding work this fall.
